With this release, French period instrument ensemble Les Nouveaux Caractères offers a delicate, sensitive journey into instrumental music during the era of Louis XV. These sonatas and character pieces for violin and continuo or for two violins without bass are coupled with works by some of the leading composers of the time. At the heart of the programme is the overture from Jean-Marie Leclair’s opera Scylla et Glaucus, arranged for trio sonata by the composer himself. The ensemble, already well experienced in the performance of operas and musical forms of theatrical inspiration, is led here by award-winning conductor Sébastien D'Hérin.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
